Technology Today for Your Tomorrows was an exciting campaign and important next step to continue to provide health care services for the West Valley community. The campaign focused on highly-advanced medical equipment necessary for our medical professionals to restore health and save lives.
Donor generosity supported many life-saving medical advances in 2010 including:
- An advanced high-definition microscope for microsurgery of the brain and spine at Banner Boswell Medical Center. This highly specialized surgical microscope is used in more than 60% of the hospital’s neurosurgical cases allowing surgeons to navigate precisely to spare muscle and vital nerves.
- The first Breast Specific Gamma Imaging technology in the Valley at Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center and added digital mammography at Banner Lakes Imaging Center. These important advancements in breast imaging ensure patient access to the highest diagnostic information available in the prevention of breast cancer.
- Highly-sophisticated Cath Lab equipment at Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center. This advanced equipment provides life-saving technology for cardiovascular and vascular patients.
- The awarding of a ground-breaking, multi-year grant for cardiovascular research at Banner Sun Health Research Institute. This research, which could revolutionize the way cardiac care is delivered, utilizes a technique to use existing heart tissue to repair damaged heart muscle.
Each of these important projects would not have been possible without community philanthropy. Sun Health Foundation is pleased to serve an important role as your nonprofit health care foundation by facilitating gift giving, pooling available resources and dedicating every gift exactly as each of you has requested.
